Prince George and Princess Charlotte haven't been on a holiday abroad, or on any official appearances overseas, with their parents in a few years. But that could be about to change - and Prince Louis might get involved too.
The last time Prince George and Princess Charlotte were overseas was July last year when they joined their parents on a European tour of Poland and Germany. The little royals always seem to love the excitement of flying, and you can rely on Princess Charlotte for a suitably royal wave.
Father-of-three Prince William is currently overseas on an official five-day trip, which began yesterday, without his wife Kate Middleton and their children.
He is visiting Jordan, Israel, and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, and will return on Thursday 28th Jun. Although he’s alone, he visited somewhere very special to Kate and got a picture at the exact spot she posed at as a child.
Kate lived in Jordan in her younger years as her father Michael was stationed in Amman while working for British Airways. The Cambridge’s released the picture of Kate as a child with her sister Pippa and dad ahead of her wedding in 2011. The spot has since become known as ‘Catherine’s rock’.
While visiting the special site, William joked that next time he visits, he’ll have to bring the whole Cambridge gang with him.
Hundreds of photographers gathered to photograph William at the very spot Kate had her picture and, while posing for the cameras, he said: ‘We will have to bring the kids next time’.
William also revealed that Kate is incredibly disappointed to have missed the trip but couldn’t attend so soon after welcoming the couple’s third child Prince Louis.
While talking to the chief executive of Save the Children, Rania Malki, William found out that Kate’s childhood home is still being lived in.
Rania revealed that her children’s paediatrician now lived in Kate’s childhood home in Jordon.
William replied: ‘No way! She will be thrilled. She loved it here, she really did. She is very upset that I am coming here without her.’
During a speech he added: ‘My wife Catherine is very sorry she cannot be here with me so soon after the birth of our son Louis, but her family remembers very fondly the almost three years she spent here as a child when her father worked for British Airways in Amman.
‘Catherine’s experience is not unique – the interchange between our two countries is real and deep: work, study, tourism and family links. Our historic ties and friendship are played out in the lives of thousands of people who consider both countries home.’
